Rocket Larkspur Seeds - Delphinium Seed
This is the wild delphinium so cherished by gardeners the world over. Long beautiful colored spikes surrounded by lovely green foliage. Rocket Larkspur is a real head-turner! An excellent backdrop in any wild garden, and also ideal as a cut-flower for bouquets or pressing.

In the garden, in a vase or dried, larkspur is lovely! Larkspur is a member of the Delphinium family, and the different varieties range from 1 to 7 feet.

Larkspur is notoriously difficult to transplant, so it is best to sow seeds directly into your flower garden after all danger of frost. Larkspur plants like full sun to partial shade, and they will grow very quickly. They thrive in average soil and cool weather.

Plant your larkspur seeds in the fall or spring, early in the season. Cover larkspur seeds lightly with 1/8th inch of soil. Space your seeds 4 inches apart, and after germination, thin seedlings to 10-12 inches apart.

Keep the soil moist to feed your larkspurs’ fast growth. During dry periods, water them once or twice a week. Provide a general purpose fertilizer once a month until after they have bloomed. Staking may be necessary to keep them from bending under the weight of the blooms.

Larkspurs are highly susceptible to frost, fungal disease (especially Sclerotium), and mildew. Insects should not be a problem, but if they are, use a general purpose insect repellent.

** Larkspur can be poisonous to some animals—most notably cattle!**
